vacation calories

Monday, July 01, 2013

Myself, my husband and daughter always take this week off. But this year it is going to rain everyday:(
Its our tradition to start the vacation getting a bunch of lobsters which we did last night. Thank God we have a porch because of course it was raining. We just boil them and I know they are pretty low cal but I did have two with plenty of butter. To make up for that my daughter and I hit the gym this morning. I was so soaked with sweat at the end of my workout a woman in the locker room said to me, wow it must be pouring out :0
I just said yeah lol
Today we are going to the Imax and I already know I want popcorn, just because it is vacation , I am going to get it.
Another tradition that we have done for the last 25 years since i started dating my husband is on July 3rd going to my sister-in-laws cottage on a private beach for fireworks and a bonfire. I never remember it being rained out before so I hope this will not be the first time we can not do it. There will be alot of calories involved there too, mostly booze ones.
Then the 4th we always have a cookout with all the relatives and the 4th is one of those holidays I let myself have potato chips. So I am looking at a week of alot more than usual calories.
Knowing my husband we will even have to eat out a few times.
I have a plan to do some kind of exercise at least an hour a day and and keep alot of fruit in
the house for snacks.
I started the week at 162 and I hope I can end it about the same if I try to be really conscious of every bite. I will let you know.
Happy 4th of July !
Everybody be safe :)
